United States Sports Academy faculty member Tim Foley has been promoted to the Director of Student Services.
The young faculty member from Harlem, Mont. brought a wealth of education and sport experience with him to the Academy when he began employment in June 2008. “His ability to work with students and conduct research as a member of the Institutional Effectiveness Committee has proven to be exemplary,” said Academy President Dr. Thomas P. Rosandich.
Foley’s experience includes working as a tutor in public school systems, as well as a college baseball coach, college basketball coach, and physical education instructor. Foley also worked in the front office for the Palm Springs Power summer collegiate baseball team and spent two years giving baseball instruction to children ages 9-17.
Foley obtained his master’s degree in business administration from the University of Phoenix in 2005 and a bachelor’s degree in social sciences from Kansas State University, where he played for the first Wildcat baseball team to qualify for the Big 12 tournament in 2002.
